The Queen's State of Shoal Lake is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 22.421 billion Shoal Lakeans enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Shoal Lakean economy, worth 699 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 31,216 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shoal Lake's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shoal Lake is ranked 50,204th in the world and 6th in East Timor for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
